Paleontology Blogroll Updates

I try to keep my blogroll current and up-to-date with the best paleontology blogs.  Part of this is because I realize this is how I get a lot of my traffic. I've gotten many positive comments and am glad that many of my readers find it to be a useful resource.

If anyone wants to suggest he inclusion of any good paleontology-themed blogs that I don't have listed please let me know as a comment below.  One exception is Brian Switek's excellent blog, Laelaps.  It is not linked because there does not appear to be any way to directly link his site at Wired.  If anyone has figured out how to do this please let me know.

Finally, I usually delete blog links if the authors have not posted anything new for more than six months. I still have Dr. Vector linked even though Matt Wedel doesn't really post there anymore. Maybe he is finally completely finished with that site?  I would also appreciate it if Matt Celeskey would let me know if the Hairy Museum of Natural History site is defunct, or maybe my link is outdated?


  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Bill. I think you mentioned the problem to me once before, and I have heard the same from a few other folks. I assume that this link for the feed doesn't work? -

    If I remember correctly, people who have tried it said it goes back to the main Wired Science feed, but I just wanted to make sure. I'll ask the tech people if they have come up with a fix for this problem yet. Sorry.

  2. Re:Laelaps, try this feed URL. I use it in my google reader and it works.

  3. Here's the direct link:

  4. I'm still posting. Hopefully more now that prep is restarting.

  6. Hi Bill -

    I've let the Hairy Museum of Natural History lapse since last year and am not currently blogging elsewhere - on and off twittering @hmnh. I plan to rebuild the site at, but that will have to wait a few more months as I wrap up a couple other projects.

    I'd be happy to let you know when I get to that point; until then I can still be reached via email at

    Thanks for asking!
